I'm looking for some live tunes from the genre that I guess is best described as "The Jazz Age" that was happening in major cities in the 1920's in the USA. a upright bass with slow, rhythmic steel brush drums keeping a slow tempo, and a vocals focused sound. The Squirrel Nut Zippers did this genre justice, particularly the female lead singer's solo work "Katharine Whalen's Jazz Squad" and I guess this bleeds into the 30's sound of the big band / swing which was revived in the late 90's through movies like 'swingers' and the like. Cherry Poppin Daddys, The Pietasters, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Royal Crown Review I think are all more the 'new-swing' genre, i'm looking more for the 20's slower style. Are there any current-day artists performing this long ago smokey jazz? thanks for any suggestions, as i've searched the forums and reviews for keywords, but found nothing.

Check out the 78 rpm section if you haven't already ... most of it is annoying pop-music from a hundred years ago... but there's plenty of interesting stuff in there.

I like this song:
